We stayed from 1-15th February. We have been to the Maldives twice before, both times to Club Faru.
Our room, no 72, on the windy side of the island was an upgraded one, with a great bathroom and the best shower I've had on holiday.
There aren't many British guests, which is great because we didn't go there to meet new best friends. In fact the only two couples we spoke to in 2 weeks were German and Austrian - that made such a nice change.
The room was kept very clean each day, as were the grounds of Embudu. The gardeners are constantly sweeping up fallen leaves to make sure the place looks as good as possible.
The food was really good and the chefs, our waiter Fatu and the restaurant manager all did a brilliant job.
The bar staff were excellent - Shyam, Sunil and Sree were so good at their jobs, they knew your drinks within a day of being there and the next drink was on it's way before you'd finished one. They were really friendly, as were all the staff, and helped make the holiday so special.
The snorkeling was amazing - we saw turtles, sharks, eagle rays and lots of beautiful fish. The coral garden at the front of the resort has no current so is safe, but beware the other side of the island as the current can be scarily strong. The guys at the dive centre will talk you through this when you arrive, so at least you know what your doing.
We had a fantastic holiday - not just because we were chilling in such a wonderful place - but thanks to the staff on the island who are so friendly and work so hard to make sure everyone has a great time.
We are gutted that Thomson are not flying from Manchester soon, that is such a shame, however if we never go again at least we had a stunning last holiday there.
If you are thinking of going here - get it booked - you won't be disappointed.
